IPv6 & Broadband – Four Speakers at Broadband World Forum Next Month

We’ve gathered four speakers from across Europe who have each deployed IPv6 on their own networks. They’ll share their experiences during the IPv6 deployment session on Wednesday, 22 October, at Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam. I’m chairing this session and I’m excited to invite you to join us next month for a case study and a panel that are both sure to be informative.

In both the case study and the panel we hope to explore what IPv6 deployment looks like from inside a network operator who has done it. How much of the traffic is IPv6 and what is it made up of mostly? How has having IPv6 deployed impacted their plans for network growth going forward?

First, Hans Thienpondt will discuss Telenet’s IPv6 deployment. Telenet in Belgium has been busy deploying IPv6 this year and over a third of the traffic coming from their network uses IPv6 according to our latest World IPv6 Launch measurements.

Then we’ll have a panel session with speakers from three more network operators who are deploying IPv6:

  • Bjorn Netland, Head of Fixed and Mobile Core Networks, Telenor
  • Nick Heatley, Senior Network Architect, Network Strategy and Core, EE, UK
  • Timo Hilbrink, Networking Team, XS4ALL

The panel will be a lively discussion of issues in deploying IPv6 in both fixed and mobile broadband networks.

Here’s where we’ll be at BBWF this year.

IPv6 Session
During the IP Evolution Track
Wednesday, 22 October

Internet Society Booth
Trade Show Floor
Stand H10

At the booth, you can pick up information about the Internet Society, learn more about our technical topics, find out how to join us as a member, and of course we’ll have fun trade show promotional items like pens, USB sticks, frisbees, and lucky draws for two Raspberry Pis each day (that’s six over the three-day event!).

Broadband World Forum offers a free Expo Hall pass so you can come visit us on the trade show floor, but that won’t get you into the IPv6 session. We do also have a discount code for delegate passes – use code I7VSH/DIS30 for 30% discount off paid registration.

We hope to see you there!
